Summary

Set amongst glorious scenery that includes the mountains of Snowdonia, dramatic seascapes and ancient castles, North Wales is home to some outstanding gardens. One of the best is Plas Cadnant, which 20 years ago was an overgrown, abandoned wilderness of ivy and decrepit fruit trees. Its new owner has brought it back to life and, rather like Heligan in Cornwall, Plas Cadnant has emerged as a gem of a garden, full of interest.

Further highlights include the private garden of Maenen Hall with its dramatic views of Snowdonia; Bodnant Garden, with a range of beautiful plants from all over the world, and Portmeirion, the eccentric and rather surreal Italianate village which has been enhanced in recent years with improvements made to the gardens.

We will be guided by Tony Russell, former Head Forester at Westonbirt Arboretum, whose expertise and enthusiasm will add greatly to the enjoyment of this holiday.

Tour highlights:

  • The film-set surroundings of Portmeirion
  • Bodnant’s wide range of exotic plants
  • The stately gardens at Powis Castle in the Welsh Marches
  • The majestic mountains of Snowdonia, an ever-changing backdrop
  • Comfortable hotel in historic Caernarfon
